Ryzen 5 1600 AF, GTX 1070, 16 gigs of ram, running Windows 10. Got the gpu from a dead computer that my dad found while renovating a house, which was a hell of a find, given that I built this PC when crypto was at its peak and GPU prices were insane.
I’ve been thinking of upgrading to Windows 11, but I’ve heard in the past about it more limited than windows 10 in terms of customisability and other features. Not sure how true that is still.
Also have a Keychron, though the one I have has blue switches, but still love the clickyness of it as well.
I wouldn’t even know what to do with so much screen space, if I were even able to fit it on my desk that is.
What’s a shame too, is that most laptop nowadays don’t even have replacable batteries, making it impossible to replace, unless the owner doesn’t mind taking apart their laptop, which is out of the question for most, or they send it to the original manufacturer, which, if it’s out of warranty, will cost a pretty penny.
A lot of things nowadays favor cosmetics and power over longevity, even if you take good care of it, and it’s a shame.
It’d be the perfect excuse to finally catch up on some of the movies and shows that I bought from local fleamarkets goodness knows how long ago, that are just have sitting on a shelf, waiting to be watched.
Longevity is one of the thing I love about PCs. Mid to high-end PCs from 8-10 years ago are still very much usable today, and if not, can be made to be usable with upgrades to the CPU, GPU, Ram, etc. (assuming the motherboard can support the newer components).
